    My former SAAS Senior Prom date, Lia DiBiase, is now engaged. I only mention this because she was my prom date and I get a chuckle1 out of it for some reason. You may not return to your regularly schedule program.

    Once in a blue moon, I’ll come across someone from the past. This blue moon belongs to Sammy Barrett (with a hat tip to Jeff Hanway for the find).
